WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OTHER FACE TONERS FROM THE HOUSE OF THE AYURVEDA EXPERIENCE
The skin care and cosmetics world has always raved about the CTM formula – Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize. While cleansing and moisturizing still remain two indispensable steps in any skin care routine, the intermediate step – toning – has been put in the back burner for a long time!
Traditional toners were mostly alcohol-based and were essentially designed for oily and acne-prone skin (we can understand why you thought that toners were only meant for teens!). Alcohol and harsh astringent agents in these toners pulled away excess oil from the skin, giving it a ‘squeaky’ feeling.
This ‘squeaky-clean’ feeling is actually a result of the loss of the skin’s natural oils. Alcohol doesn’t just pull away oil and dirt, but also disturbs the skin’s natural barrier making it overly dry, tight and uncomfortable. On the other hand, many formulas in the market are merely artificially-scented rose water solutions that do nothing but add an overpowering aroma to the face, with zero to insignificant results! This uncomfortable, ineffective or inadequate nature of thousands of facial toners gradually made Toning an unnecessary step in skin care routines!
100% Alcohol-free: Works on enlarged or clogged pores while maintaining the balance of the skin’s mantle. Naturally astringent Neroli flower water in the toner doesn’t strip the skin dry of its natural oils. Your skin won’t feel dry, uncomfortable or tight after applying this toner. You can go about your day without having to worry about the tingling, stinging sensation to settle down
Takes your experience a notch up: While it does purify pores and doesn’t miss the basics, what gives the toner an edge over thousands of others in the market is its mild, gentle exfoliating action that eliminates any residual dead skin cells or debris that might be sitting on the skin’s surface. Supported by PHAs - Gluconolactone - the Ayulogica toner is a great pick for anyone who doesn’t like the harsh exfoliation of scrubs & exfoliators but still want a clearer, smoother appearance.
Dual Dosha friendly- Dry/Sensitive Skin Types (Vata/Vata-Pitta): Get ready to change your perception around face toners! The Narangi Marigold toner is specifically designed to hydrate dry, overly dry, flaky skin. Thanks to Neroli flower water, this toner adds moisture to your skin instead of stripping it off. Calendula in the formulation soothes redness, sensitivity and discomfort that accompanies dryness. Calendula also balances out the exfoliation of Gluconolactone by keeping the skin calm and soothed.
Suitable for mature, aging skin: If you thought that toners are only meant for your daughter or granddaughter, this unique concoction will take you by surprise! The blend of active natural ingredients in the Narangi Marigold Toner – Neroli flower water, Calendula – are powerful skin-youthifying agents. These ingredients are known to show effects on common signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and uneven complexion
Carries a natural, citrusy aroma: With no added fragrances, this toner is a skin n’ senses treat. The key oil in it is the Sweet Orange oil (Narangi), that has a mood-boosting, uplifting aroma. In fact, sweet orange oil is used in several formulations for aromatherapy for relaxation.
A truly Balanced Hydrating Blend in all sense, the Narangi Marigold Toner will Transform your Relationship with Toners from Skippable to Unmissable!
Ayulogica's newest dry-skin rescuer adds the extra benefit of exfoliation to prepare your skin for the next steps of your skin care.

We wouldn’t blame you if you hadn’t...until now!
This often-sidelined ingredient is a cousin of the famous AHAs.
AHAs and BHAs (glycolic acid & salicylic acid) are touted as the ultimate, indispensable ingredients when it comes to giving the skin a clear, brighter and younger-looking appearance.
PHAs are often called the ‘new generation AHAs’ because of their almost similar effects to AHAs, but a much milder and gentler action.
PHAs are made-up of “water-hungry” molecules that attract water to the skin’s surface. What sets PHAs apart from AHAs or BHAs is the fact that PHAs are both an exfoliator and a hydrator. They are humectant that prevent moisture loss from the surface of the skin keeping the skin hydrated.
On the other hand, AHAs and BHAs can often break down the skin’s barrier and cause dryness, redness and flaking.
These are skin surface exfoliating molecules that do not penetrate too deep into the skin, resulting in milder, gentler action. Since they only work on the surface, they do not strip the skin off its moisture like AHAs or BHAs. With PHAs in your skin care, you can rest assured that your skin won’t feel uncomfortable due to flaking, dryness or redness.
PHAs in the Narangi Marigold Toner feature in the form of Gluconolactone. A mild exfoliating agent that supports the skin in maintaining a cleaner, clearer and smoother appearance. Gluconolactone also acts as a humectant in the toner to keep moisture trapped in the skin. Gluconolactone makes the toner a perfect fit for dry and sensitive skin types!
Neroli is the white flower of bitter orange (bitter orange is the sister of sweet orange).
The bitter orange shrub is native of India and now has gained popularity all across the world, especially Europe.
It is extracted during the steam distillation of the fragrant flower. Neroli flower water is much less concentrated in nature than its oil (1) making it gentler to use. Neroli carries hydrating and natural toning properties, making it a widely used ingredient in natural skin care. The flower water of the bitter orange tree helps purify, tone (1) and tighten the appearance of enlarged pores. This is a safe and gentle alternative to alcohol-based astringents that strip the skin dry of its moisture and disturb the skin’s natural barrier, making it prone to even more dryness and roughness. Neroli flower water adds a layer of hydration and moisture to the skin. It helps wake up tired complexion and leave the skin looking brightened and toned. A bonus: it also carries a refreshing, zesty aroma that adds a sense of freshness to the skin and helps relax the body (1)
Thought to bloom on the first day of the month, Calendula’s name stems from the Latin “kalendae” which means “little calendar” or “the first day of every month”. Also commonly called Pot marigold, Calendula is known to have been traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for its soothing and calming benefits. It contains flavonoids (multi-active components) that help in soothing distressed skin due to external aggressors like UV rays (2). Some recent studies (3) have indicated that it also promotes skin hydration and the look of firmness. Each individual Calendula petal contains five compounds—Oleanic Acid, Lupeol, Quercetin, α Amyrin and β Amyrin. These efficacious compounds have been studied and are known to help the skin fight effects of environmental aggressors while also soothing the skin and reducing discomfort.
You may have seen potato starch as an ingredient in food items like sponge cake, where it's used to keep the cake moist and gives it a soft texture.
Potato starch contains high levels of naturally occurring phosphorous, an essential mineral for the body. Potato starch is also known for visibly evening out skin tone and easing the appearance of the signs of aging, while gently exfoliating the skin, without drying or stretching it out.
In traditional Ayurveda, raw Potato juice is even recommended for soothing skin flare-ups and redness. And because it has high levels of natural fiber, Potato starch is also a potent natural moisturizer that adds a radiant look to skin by helping manage dryness and dullness. Potato starch can also be used as a natural binding agent (to bind the other ingredients together).
These compounds are active multimineral chrono-energizers, that are together called ‘Sepitonic M3’. Designed for hair and skin care, targeting aging skin by halting the appearance of aggressive signs of aging, even those seen in 20–30 year olds.
In a study conducted by SEPPIC on 30 volunteers, the volunteers noticed visible effects of these compounds on signs of aging with a 7% decrease in the appearance of deep wrinkles and 5% improvement in the appearance of overall skin texture, after regular use.(4)
New clinical trials also show that these compounds produce a visibly energizing and revitalizing effect to skin.

Ayulogica is a modern, scientific skincare brand that’s not only formulated using Ayurvedic ingredients but also uses principles of Ayurveda in the way the products are designed and how they address different skincare needs.
Based on the principles of Ayurveda where Ayus (Long Life) + Veda (Knowledge or Science) = Knowledge or Science of Longevity in Sanskrit (the ancient language spoken in India by scholars). Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old life-science or the science of wellness considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science, it originated in India and is more relevant now in our present day modern life where stress is the new norm.
According to Ayurveda, we can all achieve optimum health if we have a balance between our mind, body, and inner self or soul. As defined by the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), in line with the World Health Organization’s definition of health, wellness is: “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.” This is unlike the way modern medicine approach is - Absence of disease equals good health. The root causes of imbalances in our lifestyle that lead to problems later in life, can be addressed by knowing our current state of balance or “vikriti”. If there are any lingering imbalances after removing the root cause, balance can be attained by using opposites. For example, if it is winter season and the body is feeling cold, you treat it with warm foods and warm clothes. It is a simple approach, yet we are unable to listen to our body’s ques. We are distracted all the time and this is where Ayurveda comes into place.
There are three distinct energies or dosha – vata, pitta, kapha.
They are the essential building blocks for all forms of life and are composed of the five elements - air, space, water, fire and earth. A combination of these elements makes up the three doshas. Just like we have a unique DNA, we all are born with a unique combination of these elements (or prakriti). Our dosha changes continuously in reference to external factors like the environment we live in, our lifestyle, the food we eat, our social and mental health. This leads to imbalances and health issues. By knowing our current state of health, and following the diet that is right for our dosha, doing the exercises and sleeping at the right time, we can get back to our homeostasis.
Skin is the largest organ! Skin is like a sponge and is affected by our inner health. Stress can affect your whole body, including your skin, hair, and nails. Your emotions have a powerful effect on your skin. Since stress is a part of life, what matters is how you handle it. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal.
You may have noticed that when you are stressed, you break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, which tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Part of the problem is our lifestyle that forces us to have a deep disconnect with our bodies, including our skin. We neglect our skin and then cover up our flaws with make-up which leads to more skin issues like clogged pores, acne, rashes, and inflammation. It is imperative that we look after our skin by nourishing it with skin food both externally and internally based on our current mind-body profile or dosha. This is the foundation of Ayulogica – a completely customized approach towards your skincare based on your lifestyle, your current state of mind and body balance. We incorporate adaptogens, like Ashwagandha and Tulsi, that reportedly promote homeostasis, for example by reducing cellular sensitivity and immune suppression. We target towards addressing stress related skin problems using a sustainable approach where less is more and products are multi-tasking for the multi-tasking women and men. It is cruelty-free, vegan and gluten-free.
